This is good news – hints of ‘great news’ in the future. Another CR2… that I hope will become CR3… and then… reality- a 7DmkII.
My most desired camera item at the moment is a EF Canon 50mm f/1.4 – f/2 USM (IS). As there was a CR2 about that recently, I’m hoping it will come out in 2014.
And then… this – a replacement for my beloved 7D. (Not that mine is broken, in fact I continue to remain impressed at how capable a camera it is). But a 7DmkII would be my next most desire camera gear to consider (when/if I need a replacement).
Improved IQ (less noise, bit more DR) at any ISO level would be my main request for improvements… mind you, I’m not a pixel peeper, and I’m happy with how my 7D does, it really is a great camera that I’ve loved since I bought it 4 years ago. I’ve taken thousands and thousands of photos with it, and it rarely disappoints.
Other features to be:
- DPAF – perhaps even a noted improvement over the 70D’s revolutionary technology
- spot & partial metering tied to active AF point
Looking forward to what will appear in 2014. In the meantime, I’ll be taking lots of photos with my 7D and existing lenses.
Price will be (puts a pinky to the corner of his mouth) one MILLION dollars. muh ha ha ha
This is a great one-line quote – that caused me a laugh this morning (here in Australia time)! Thanks, dstppy!!!
Best wishes and a great pre-Christmas weekend to all.
